Congratulations Bee Daddy! I didn’t know that bees didn’t forage close to home.

It's day 4 and I had to release the queens. It was overcast and gusty. A good time NOT to open a hive. So I opened and released the queen because it was time, and apparently in both hives it was needed because they hadn't ate through the candy release yet.
Pics from the wife will come tomorrow.

I switched the riding mare with the prego mare for yard space (the yard instead of the pasture). I believe she is getting ready to burst. No bagging but I think it's getting close.

It's a cold day for May. Upper 30's tonight. The clover started blooming the same day I told (I think) Bay that it wasn't blooming and the same day I got the bees (again I think, that's why I'm putting it here). We still have wild flowers all over. I just worry about how many people may spray their fields this year.

Our clover is blooming like crazy, bees are all over it. They’re welcome here. I hope your bees stay out of sprayed fields.
That’s a good picture of you and your boy.

Had a hen go broody 2 nights ago. Oddly after they were laying in a box the wife can't reach and I took them out, also in the same box. Due date 5-26-21. I put it here so when I forget I'll know what day they are expected. May have a welding job starting. I go to look at it this afternoon. It'll be a short job but a job.
